Two men charged with the attempted murder of a pair of Chicago police officers were ordered held without bond Friday.
They were charged Thursday with three counts each of attempted first-degree murder. The charges came one day after two police officers were shot while conducting a search warrant in the Englewood neighborhood.
Thomas was convicted in 2008 for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and a 2006 robbery conviction. Jones has juvenile convictions for drug possession charges, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The wounded officers, six- and seven-year veterans of the force, are expected to recover.
